I have to preface this picture with a few comments. Yesterday, my cousin, the granddaughter of my great-grandmother Pearlie Mae “Julie” Kilpatrick sent me this picture and I am absolutely mesmerized by it. I only have a few pictures of Pearlie Mae and this one is exquisite. She was all dressed up, including a pearl necklace and pearl earrings. My cousin took the picture of the picture w/ a digital camera, hence the glare, but we’ll be getting that edited out soon enough.
The picture was taken after she and my great-grandfather were married in 1931 as she is wearing a ring on her left hand (can’t see it in the photo), so we think the picture was taken soon thereafter. I never knew her, she died when I was not even yet 2 years old, but I do have a memory of being at her house and seeing her in the bed, even though I was so young.
This month’s Carnival of Genealogy topic is “A Tribute to Women;” my scrapbook page is my tribute to Pearlie Mae.
